Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA):

Judiciary Procedures on Accommodation Requests, Appeals and Discrimination Complaints for

  • Employees and Job Applicants (Title I)
  • Court Users (Title II)

The Judiciary is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD), and other applicable anti-discrimination statutes. The Judiciary will provide a reasonable accommodation for court users, qualified employees and job applicants with a disability, provided that the accommodation does not fundamentally alter the nature of a Judiciary program, service, or activity or impose an undue hardship upon the Judiciary. The Judiciary has established ADA procedures entitled: (1) "The New Jersey Judiciary's Title I ADA Procedures for Employees and Job Applicants with Disabilities" and (2) "The New Jersey Judiciary's Title II ADA Procedures for Access to the Courts by Individuals with Disabilities." The procedures are provided in two separate brochures - one for employees'/job applicants (Title I) and the other for court users (Title II). The brochures also identify the vicinage and central office Title I and Title II ADA Coordinators assigned to handle accommodation requests from individuals with disabilities. You can contact your Title I or Title II ADA Coordinator as listed in the brochures with any questions you may have about these procedures.
